In case you've missed it, I'm now on a little adventure to go 7 days without spending a dime. I'd love your input and comments on the site! I'm 3 days down!

I just read your Buy Nothing challenge posts last night, and I was absolutely impressed! Congratulations on making it through! I discussed your challenge with my husband, and we both decided that we wouldn't make it through without buying gas. There's just no way around it with the length of our commutes. We did decide to try to do a 3-week no shopping challenge, and did a huge trip yesterday. I think we'll even make it a month if we try!

I agree. Gas is a tough one. It's hard to get around when you work an hour away. I LOVE the challenge though.

Before I was married, I could have easily done this as long as I had a full pantry to start with. Now, I'm not so sure. Does it count if my wife buys food and then cooks it for our family to consume?
